Behaeddin Shakir or Bahaeddin Shakir was an Ottoman politician. He was a founding member of the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP) and director of the Shuraï-Ummett, a newspaper that supported the Committee. At the end of World War I, he was detained with other members of the CUP, first by the local Ottoman court martial and then by the British government. He was then sent to Malta pending military trials for crimes against humanity, which never materialized, and was subsequently exchanged by the British for hostages held by Turkish forces.
